Perth based energy giant SSE has signalled its support for serving and ex-services personnel by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
The firm has committed to a package of support for serving and ex-forces personnel and their families.
It includes additional leave for training, support for those with family away on service and recruitment efforts to support ex-servicemen and women considering a career in energy.
John Stewart, SSE’s director of HR, signed the covenant alongside Scotland’s most senior RAF leader, Air Vice-Marshal Ross Paterson, watched by veterans and reservists.
He said: “In signing the Covenant, we’re joining over 400 local authorities and more than 5,000 businesses and charities, who pledge to help support both ex and serving military personnel.
“We’re proud to be a forces-friendly organisation and want to continue to support those working with us now.”
The firm employs veterans and reservists in a variety of roles from operating renewable assets such as windfarms and hydro plants to maintaining the flexible electricity grids to transport clean energy.
